how to make a summer hummer

A “Summer Hummer” typically refers to a refreshing and alcoholic summer cocktail. One popular variation is the “Frozen Summer Hummer,” which is a frozen and slushy version of the classic drink. Here’s how you can make a Frozen Summer Hummer:


  • 1 12 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Triple Sec (orange liqueur)
  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup (equal parts sugar and water, dissolved)
  • 2 cups Ice
  • Lemon Zest or Twist (for garnish)
  • Crushed Ice (optional, for serving)


  1. Prepare the Simple Syrup:
    • In a small saucepan, combine equal parts sugar and water (e.g., 12 cup of each). Heat over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. Allow it to cool before using.
  2. Blend the Ingredients:
    • In a blender, combine the vodka, triple sec, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and ice.
    • Blend until the mixture is smooth and has a slushy consistency.
  3. Prepare the Glass:
    • Optionally, you can rim a glass with lemon zest or sugar for added flavor and presentation. To rim the glass with lemon zest, wet the rim with a lemon slice and dip it into a plate of lemon zest.
    • Fill the glass with crushed ice or regular ice cubes.
  4. Pour and Garnish:
    • Pour the blended mixture into the prepared glass.
    • Garnish with a lemon twist or zest.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Your Frozen Summer Hummer is ready to enjoy! Sip and savor this cool and refreshing cocktail on a hot summer day.

Feel free to adjust the sweetness by adding more or less simple syrup to suit your taste. You can also experiment with different garnishes or even add a maraschino cherry for an extra pop of color and flavor. Remember to enjoy responsibly, and if you’re not a fan of alcohol, you can create a non-alcoholic version by omitting the vodka and triple sec and increasing the lemon juice and simple syrup for flavor.
